This leads the Laplace pressure to decrease, so that there is a competition between two antagonistic effects. If the gas-liquid imbalance overcomes the surface tension effect, a gaseous nucleus is extracted from the crevice and the liquid becomes nucleated. 58 Indeed, as the meniscus recedes, not only does the Laplace pressure fall, but so does the partial pressure of the gas within the pocket.

Figure 10 - The two zones separated by the Blake threshold at (a) 20 kHz; (b) 1 MHz The Blake threshold can be represented in an Apfel diagram (Fig. 10),56 where the horizontal axis represents the ratio [applied acoustic pressure]/[hydrostatic pressure], and the vertical axis, the ratio [bubble radius]/[resonance radius]. The resonance radius can be determined by the Minneart equation (see below). In zone A, the bubble cannot grow due to an insufficient quasi-static reduction of the acoustic pressure, and zone B is the zone of explosive growth.
40 It is therefore expected that the stress required to produce cavitation should be of a similar order of magnitude. 41 The fact that water (without protracted purification) is able to cavitate under acoustic pressures of ca. 1 bar (-105 Pa) suggests that inhomogeneities in the bulk act as "structural defects" reducing the tensile strength. , the cavitation threshold. 1. Statement of the problem The first idea in explaining the cavitation threshold was to consider that in the bulk of a liquid at a given temperature and pressure, local density fluctuations cause the rapid formation and destruction of microscopic vapor cavities (the homogeneous nucleation model).
